LGBTQ+ Yoga Spring Half Day Retreat
May 13, 2023 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm£18 – £30
Enjoy mindful movement, rest and relaxation for the LGBTQIA+ community at the beautiful Stables Yoga Studio in York. It’s a great chance to meet other yogis from around the Queer Yoga North network and invest in self-care.
We’ll start with a grounding flow around our Earth Spring theme. Then there’ll be a tea break with treats and time to connect with others, or just stay in that inward space if you prefer. Then we’ll move into a nourishing restorative class, followed by a Yoga Nidra. We’ll finish with an optional sharing circle.
